Nasi Lemak with Chicken Wing, Otah and Egg, $4.50
With the Chinese New Year holidays officially over, let me come clean - I'm finally feeling the effects of delicacies overload. Forget abalone, scallops and sea cucumbers, I just want all my favourite hawker stalls to be up and running again! Don't you? Not so long ago, I had an intense craving for Nasi Lemak and practically convinced M that we need it for lunch the very next day.
You see, I've been to Changi Village for Nasi Lemak a couple of times with different groups of people, and those memories have sat well with me. Going back for Nasi Lemak felt like the most natural thing to do. Then we saw the insanely long queue. I seem to have the ability to only remember the best things about places. I guess we could have gone to Mizzy's, the stall beside International, which hardly ever witnesses a queue, but we went ahead anyway. After a pretty grueling wait, we finally sat down with two plates of Nasi Lemak. It was certainly delicious - the egg was deep fried just the way I like it, with golden brown egg white crisps at the side, the rice was decent, the chilli was a satisfying mix of sweet and savoury and the otah was downright tasty. But the chicken wing, while tasty, had a batter that was a tad hard and didn't feel all that freshly fried. A pity because chicken wings are all I care about in a Nasi Lemak, apart from the rice, of course. Would I queue again? Probably not. My memories of Changi Village Nasi Lemak are no longer so fond. I would rather head to Chong Pang and Punggol Nasi Lemak for my fix! They have much better wings. Are you a fan of Changi V Nasi Lemak? Would you join the queue?
